Local Hero (arr. Jessica Wells): Saxophone Concerto
ArtistsAmy Dickson (saxophone)
Melbourne Symphony Orchestra
Winner of the 2013 Classic Brit Awards - Breakthrough Artist of the Year, the internationally acclaimed Australian saxophonist Amy Dickson releases her new album ‘Catch Me If You Can’, featuring contemporary classical music for saxophone & orchestra by film composer legend John Williams, American composer Michael Kamen, and Mark Knopfler (Dire Straits). On this album, Amy performs alongside the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra.
‘Catch Me If You Can’ features John Williams’ Escapades for alto saxophone and orchestra, Michael Kamen’s Concerto for Saxophone (the score for which was personally given to Amy by Michael Kamen’s family) and Mark Knopfler’s iconic score for the 1983 film ‘Local Hero’, arranged by the Australian film composer Jessica Wells.
Amy Dickson is deeply committed to the development of new repertoire for the saxophone, whilst also championing existing repertoire. She regularly commissions new works, and makes arrangements of existing works from other instrumental repertoire. She has made a substantial contribution to the orchestral, chamber and solo repertoire.
Composers who have written for her include Ross Edwards, Peter Sculthorpe, Graham Fitkin, Steve Martland and Huw Watkins. Recognized widely for her remarkable and distinctive tone and exceptional musicality, Amy has performed throughout the world in venues such as the Wigmore Hall, Royal Albert Hall and Sydney Opera House, and as a soloist with orchestras including the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, the Vienna Chamber Orchestra, the Philharmonia and London Philharmonic Orchestra.
“She has an individual and unusual tone, luscious, silky-smooth, sultry and voluptuous by turns; her phrasing is beautifully finished, her control of dynamic infinitely subtle.” - Gramophone
